STREAM-GAGING STATIONS AND PUBLICATIONS 
RELATING TO WATER RESOURCES, 1885-1913. 



Compiled by B. D. WOOD. 



INTBODUCTION. 

Investigation of water resources by the United States Geological 
Survey has consisted in large part of measurements of the volume of 
flow of streams and studies of the conditions affecting that flow, but 
it has comprised also investigation of such closely allied subjects as 
irrigation, water storage, water powers, underground waters, and 
quality of waters. Most of the results of these investigations have 
been published in the series of water-supply papers, but some have 
appeared in the bulletins, professional papers, monographs, and 
annual reports. 

The results of stream-flow measurements are now published an 
nually in 12 parts, each part covering an area whose boundaries 
coincide with natural drainage features as indicated below : 

Part I. North Atlantic basins. 

II. South Atlantic and eastern Gulf of Mexico basins. 

III. Ohio River basin. 

IV. St. Lawrence River basin. 

V. Upper Mississippi River and Hudson Bay basins. 
VI. Missouri River basin. 
VII. Lower Mississippi River basin. 
VIII. Western Gulf of Mexico basins. 
IX. Colorado River basin. 
X. Great Basin. 
XI. Pacific basins in California. 
XII. North Pacific basins.

o In preparation. 
NOTE. No data regarding stream flow are given in the 15th and 17th annual reports. 

The records at most of the stations discussed in these reports 
extend over a series of years, and miscellaneous measurements at 
many points other than regular gaging stations have been made 
each year. An index of the reports containing records obtained 
prior to 1904 has been published in Water-Supply Paper 119. 

The following table gives, by years and drainage basins, the num 
bers of the papers on surface-water supply published from 1899 to 
1913. The data for any particular station will, in general, be found 
in the reports covering the years during which the station was main 
tained or in special reports. For example, data for Machias River 
at Whitneyville, Me., 1903 to 1913, are published in Water-Supply 
Papers 97, 124, 165, 201, 241, 261, 281, 301, 321, and 351, which 
contain records for the New England streams from 1903 to 1913. 
Results of miscellaneous measurements are published by drainage 
basins.

STREAM-FLOW RECORDS. TO 

In these papers and in the following lists the stations are arranged 
in downstream order. The main stem of any river is determined 
by measuring or estimating its drainage area that is, the head 
water stream having the largest drainage area is considered the con 
tinuation of the main stream, and local changes in name and lake 
surface are disregarded. All stations from the source to the mouth 
of the main stem of the river are presented first, and the tributaries 
in regular order from source to mouth follow, the streams in each 
tributary basin being listed before those of the next basin below. 

The exceptions to this rule occur in the records for Mississippi 
River, which are given in four parts, as indicated on page in, and 
in the records for large lakes, where it is simpler to take up the 
streams in regular order around the rim of the lake than to cross 
back and forth over the lake surface. 



PART XI. PACIFIC COAST BASINS IN CALIFOENIA. 

PRINCIPAL STREAMS. 

The rivers draining into the Pacific Ocean from California include 
Tia Juana, Sweetwater, San Diego, Bernardo, San Luis Rey, and 
Los Angeles rivers, draining areas to the south of San Francisco 
Bay; San Joaquin River, whose chief tributaries are Kern, Kings, 
Merced, Tuolumne and Stanislaus rivers; Sacramento River, whose 
principal tributaries are Pit, Feather, and American; and Russian, 
Eel, Mad, and Klamath rivers, which flow into the ocean north of 
San Francisco Bay. Except Klamath River, which receives the 
drainage from a small area in Oregon, and a few streams in Oregon 
that flow into Goose Lake, at the head of Pit River, all the streams in 
this division are entirely in California. 

In addition to the list of gaging stations and the annotated list of 
publications relating specifically to the section, these pages contain 
a similar list of reports that are of general interest in many sections 
and cover a wide range of hydrologic subjects, and also brief ref 
erences to reports published by State and other organizations. (See 

p. 146.)

GEOLOGIC FOLIOS. 

Under the plan adopted for the preparation of a geologic map of the United 
States the entire area is divided into small quadrangles, bounded by certain 
meridians and parallels, and these quadrangles, which number several thou 
sand, are separately surveyed and mapped. 1 The unit of survey is also the unit 
of publication, and the maps and description of each quadrangle are issued in 
the form of a folio. When all the folios are completed they will constitute a 
Geologic Atlas of the United States. 

A folio is designated by the name of the principal town or of a prominent 
natural feature within the quadrangle. Each folio includes maps showing the 
topography, geology, underground structure, and mineral deposits of the area 
mapped and several pages of descriptive text. The text explains the maps and 
describes the topographic and geologic features of the country and its mineral 
products. The topographic map shows roads, railroads, waterways, and, by 
contour lines, the shapes of the hills and valleys and the height above sea 
level of all points in the quadrangle. The areal-geology map shows the dis 
tribution of the various rocks at the surface. The structural-geology map shows 
the relations of the rocks to one another underground. The economic-geology 
map indicates the location of mineral deposits that are commercially valuable. 
The artesian-water map -shows the depth to underground-water horizons. 
Economic-geology and artesian-water maps are included in folios if the condi- 

1 Index maps showing areas in California covered by topographic maps and by geologic 
folios will be mailed on receipt of request addressed to the Director, U. S. Geological 
Survey, Washington, D. C. 



PACIFIC SLOPE OF CALIFORNIA. 145 

tions in the areas mapped warrant tlieir publication. The folios are of special 
interest to students of geography and geology and are valuable as guides in the 
development and utilization of mineral resources. 

The folios numbered from 1 to 163, inclusive, are published in only one form 
(IS by 22 inches), called the library edition. Some of the folios that bear num 
bers higher than 163 are published also in an octavo edition (6 by 9 inches). 
Owing to a fire in the Geological Survey building May 18, 1913, the stock of 
geologic folios was more or less damaged by fire and water, but 80 or 90 per 
cent of the folios are usable. They will be sold at the uniform price of 5 cents 
ouch, with no reduction for wholesale orders. This rate applies to folios in 
stock from 1 to 184, inclusive, also to the library edition of folio 186. The 
library edition of folios 185, 187, and higher numbers sells for 25 cents a copy, 
except that some folios which contain an unusually large amount of matter sell 
for 50 cents a copy. The octavo edition of folio 185 and higher numbers sells 
for 50 cents a copy. If 34 folios selling at 25 cents each (or their equivalent in 
higher-priced folios) are ordered at one time a discount of 40 per cent is 
allowed; $5.10 is the minimum amount accepted at this rate. 

All the folios contain descriptions of the drainage of the quadrangles. The 
folios in the following list contain also brief discussions of the underground 
waters in connection with the economic resources of the areas and more or less 
information concerning the utilization of the water resources.

STREAM-GAGING STATIONS AND PUBLICATIONS 
RELATING TO WATER RESOURCES, 1885-1913. 



Compiled by B. D. WOOD. 



INTRODUCTION. 

Investigation of water resources by the United States Geological 
Survey has consisted in large part of measurements of the volume of 
flow of streams and studies of the conditions affecting that flow, but 
it has comprised also investigation of such closely allied subjects as 
irrigation, water storage, water powers, underground waters, and 
quality of waters. Most of the results of these investigations have 
been published in the series of water-supply papers, but some have 
appeared in the bulletins, monographs, professional papers, and 
annual reports. 

The results of stream-flow measurements are now published an 
nually in 12 parts, each part covering an area whose boundaries 
coincide with natural drainage features as indicated below : 

Part I. North Atlantic slope basins. 

II. South Atlantic slope and eastern Gulf of Mexico basins. 

III. Ohio River basin. 

IV. St. Lawrence River basin. 

V. Upper Mississippi River and Hudson Bay basins. 

VI. Missouri River basin. 

VII. Lower Mississippi River basin. 

VIII. Western Gulf of Mexico basins. 

IX. Colorado River basin. 

X. Great Basin. 

XI. Pacific slope basins in California. 

XII. North Pacific slope basins. 

HOW GOVERNMENT REPORTS MAY BE OBTAINED OR, CONSULTED.

In preparation. 

The records at most of the stations discussed in these reports 
extend over a series of years, and miscellaneous measurements at 
many points other than regular gaging stations have been made 
each year. An index of the reports containing records obtained 
prior to 1904 has been published in Water-Supply Paper 119. 

The following table gives, by years and drainage basins, the numbers 
of the papers on surface-water supply published from 1899 to 1913. 
The data for any particular station will, as a rule, be found in the 
reports covering the years during which the station was maintained. 
For example, data for Machias River at Whitney ville, Me., 1903 to 
1913, are published in Water-Supply Papers 97, 124, 165, 201, 241, 
261, 281, 301, 321, and 351, which contain records for the New 
England streams from 1903 to 1913. Results of miscellaneous 
measurements are published by drainage basins.

STREAM-FLOW REPORTS. VII 

In these papers and in the following lists the stations are arranged 
in downstream order. The main stem of any river is determined 
by measuring or estimating its drainage area that is, the headwater 
stream having the largest drainage area is considered the continua 
tion of the main stream, and local changes in name and lake surface 
are disregarded. All stations from the source to the mouth of the 
main stem of the river are presented first, and the tributaries in 
regular order from source to mouth follow 7 , the streams in each 
tributary basin being listed before those of the next basin below. 

The exceptions to this rule occur in the records for Mississippi 
River, which are given in four parts, as indicated on page in, and 
in the records for large lakes, where it is simpler to take up the 
streams in regular order around the rim of the lake than to cross 
back and forth over the lake surface. 



Purr XII. NORTH PACIFIC SLOPE DRAINAGE BASINS. 

PRINCIPAL STREAMS. 

The largest rivers discharging into the Pacific Ocean in Oregon 
and Washington are Rogue, Umpqua, and Columbia rivers and 
streams that reach the ocean through Puget Sound. The principal 
tributaries of the Columbia are Clark Fork, Kootenai, Spokane, 
Wenatchee, Yakima, Snake, Bruneau, Boise. Walla AValla, Umatilla, 
John Day, Deschutes, Hood, and Willamette rivers. Nisqually, 
Puyallup, White, Snoqualmie, and Skagit rivers flow into Puget 
Sound. The streams of this division drain wholly or in part the 
States of Idaho, Montana, Nevada, Oregon, Utah, Washington, and 
Wyoming. 

In addition to the list of gaging stations and the annotated list of 
publications relating specifically to the. section, these pages contain 
o similar list of reports that are of general interest in many sections 
and cover a wide range of hydrologic subjects, and also brief refer 
ences to reports published by State and other organizations. 
(See p. 168.)

GEOLOGIC FOLIOS. 

Under the plan adopted for the preparation of a geologic map of the United 
States the entire area is divided into small quadrangles, bounded by certain 
meridians and parallels, and these quadrangles, which number several thousand, 
are separately surveyed and mapped. 1 The unit of survey is also the unit of 
publication, and the maps and description of each quadrangle are issued in the 
form of a folio. When all the folios are completed they will constitute a Geo 
logic Atlas of the United States. 

A folio is designated by the name of the principal town or of a prominent 
natural feature within the quadrangle. Each folio includes maps showing the 
topography, geology, underground structure, and mineral deposits of the area 
mapped and several pages of descriptive text. The text explains the maps and 
describes the topographic and geologic features of the country and its mineral 
products. The topographic map shows roads, railroads, waterways, and, by 
contour lines, the shapes of the hills and valleys and the height above sea level 
of all points in the quadrangle. The areal-geology map shows the distribution 
of the various rocks at the surface. The structural-geology map shows the rela 
tions of the rocks to one another underground. The economic-geology map indi 
cates the location of mineral deposits that are commercially valuable. The 

1 Index maps showing areas in the North Pacific slope basins covered by topographic 
maps and by geologic folios will be mailed on receipt of request addressed to the Director, 
U. S. Geological Survey, Washington, D. C. 



NORTH PACIFIC SLOPE DRAINAGE BASINS. 167 

artesian- water map shows the depth to underground- wa tor horizons. Economic- 
geology and artesian-water maps are included in folios if the conditions in the 
areas mapped warrant their publication. The folios are of special interest to 
students of geography and geology and are valuable as guides in the develop 
ment and utilization of mineral resources. 

The folios numbered from 1 to 163, inclusive, are published in only one form 
(18 by 22 inches), called the library edition.- Some of the folios that bear num 
bers higher than 163 are published also in an octavo edition (6 by 9 inches). 
Owing to a fire in the Geological Survey building May IS, 1913, the stock of 
geologic folios was more or less damaged by fire and water, but 80 or 90 per 
cent of the folios are usable. They will be sold at the uniform price of 5 cents 
each, with no reduction for wholesale orders. This rate applies to folios in 
stock from 1 to 1<S4. inclusive (except reprints), also the library edition of 
folio 186. The library edition of folios 185, 187, and higher numbers sells for 25 
cents a copy, except that some folios which contain an unusually large amount 
of matter sell at higher prices. The octavo edition of folio 185 and higher 
numbers sells for 50 cents a copy except folio 193. which sells for 75 cents a 
copy. If 34 folios selling at 25 cents each (or their equivalent in higher-priced 
folios) are ordered at one time a discount of 40 per cent is allowed; $5.10 is 
the minimum amount accepted at this rate. 

All the folios contain descriptions of the drainage of the quadrangles. The 
folios in the following list contain also brief discussions of the underground 
waters in connection with the economic resources of the areas and more or less 
information concerning the utilization of the water resources. 

An asterisk (*) indicates that the stock of the folio is exhausted.
